Saturday Session, Online – Saturday 9 October


The Saturday Sessions provide our alumni a way to extend their professional development and ‘top-up’ their Cranlana experience.  The Saturday Sessions discuss different topical issues and explore ethical themes such as power, fairness, justice, trust and short- vs long-term thinking. Using the Cranlana method, these truly fascinating conversations about the things that matter are based on a selection of provided readings and are guided by our expert Moderators. These intimate sessions of philosophical and ethical discussion will refuel your sense of moral courage, re-connect you to your critical reasoning capabilities and provide a forum to re-engage with the extraordinary Cranlana alumni.

The online events allow you, wherever you’re located,  to join us and your peers.  
Reason, Intuition and Emotion. Our responses to some ethical challenges are immediate. We know what is right or wrong, without stopping to think. So while philosophers have tended to emphasise the centrality of reason in decision making, such automatic responses suggest that there is more going on. Do we really think our way to decisions – or is the pathway one of feeling and intuition? This session will discuss recent scientific thinking including the concept of social intuitionism developed by leading psychologist Jonathan Haidt and its implications for ethical leadership.
Saturday Session topics will be confirmed in the month prior to the event.  Participants will be emailed links to pre-readings, and a Zoom invitation a few days prior.
*Please note the event times are EST.
